One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpacking by my OWN at such a quite young age!!! 98% of my friends, course mates are not so keen of backpacking at my age... THEY prefer TOUR and shopping... :( and fall in love when it can be done later (just a personal opinion)

Cycling from KUTA to TANAH LOT, Bali. The weather was DAMN HOT that day, and route to Tanah Lot was quite hilly especially the part where a lot of paddy plant... nearly HALF DEAD but i ENJOYED IT very much!!! hahahahahaha! Met a nice family on the way there... It is one of the SILLY AMAZING THING that i ever done.

Teach, Learn, Share

Maybe i can help to design your DREAM HOUSE :)
